On 11-12 May 2015, the second Higher Education Reform Experts (HERE) study visit on the topic “organising international credit mobility” took place in Ghent and Brussels, Belgium.  The two-day study visit, organised by the SPHERE team, focused on ‘credit mobility’, including  measures to facilitate recognition, quality assurance in mobility, incentivising mobility and student support services. The first day of the study visit entailed an institutional visit to Ghent University, offering participants an opportunity to gain an insight and understanding of the mechanics, benefits and essentials of short term mobility as well as a number of flagship initiatives that Ghent is leading, ranging from assessing mobility partners and managing fair grade conversion. ves . On the following day, participants were transfered to Brussels to meet with the European Commission and other Brussels-based organisations, to learn more about relevant European level policies and programmes, and Bologna Process developments, including the revision of the ECTS User’s Guide and the Erasmus Quality Charter.

Around 35 participants from 18 EU Partner Countries attended the event.
